2012 Leeway Transformation Award – $15,000

Eiko has a background in woodcarving and incorporates wood sculpture costumes with performance, in what she calls Live Wood Sculpture. For these performances, she has worked with dancers, actors, musicians, her own children and people with learning differences. In developing these performances, she has learned how to work with people, respecting everyone’s unique background and ability. Eiko encourages them to express their own ideas in their performances. She uses this approach when working with students with disabilities.  She creates the best situation for people to create and coaches them to come up with their own art. She does not tell them how to do it, but instead allows them to jump in and do their own art, utilizing their own ideas and their own personal style. She believes art tells each student’s personal story, even if they are unable to speak.
